Read Letter 44, Volume 1: Escape Velocity Online Free - On Inauguration Day, newly elected President Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and a failing health care system. But in a letter penned by the outgoing President, Blades learns the truth that redefines "critical": seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they’re getting close - assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination.
Today, President-elect Blades has become the most powerful man on the planet. This planet.

A comic about alien invasion with political turns and twists! A great combo that always interests me!
Blades is a newly elected president. The last president not only left the country into poor state of economy, health care and engaged in unnecessary wars with two countries. H...

President Obama vs. the Gigantic Alien Gun
[Though the book does not officially feature Barack Obama and George W. Bush, there can be no doubt that two of its main characters are thinly veiled versions of the two, and in this review I will thus for simplicity's sake refer to them as Obama and Bush...

Three and a half stars.
WARNING! BIG TIME SPOILERS ABOUND!
How scary can an alien be if you can figure out the cubic space he takes up with a math formula?
Take the formula for figuring out the volume of a cone – then take the formula for figuring out a sphere – take half the volume for the sphere a...

Aliens are real and are much closer to us than we thought. NASA have discovered what looks like a massive alien mining operation in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter but we don’t know whether the aliens are hostile or friendly - or even whether they’re mining or preparing to inva...

Letter 44 is equal parts space adventure and politics, an odd mix that somehow works perfectly. Roughly half of the story is with the intrepid crew of the Clarke, on a mission to discover what mysterious thing a mysterious intelligence is building, pointed at Earth. The other half of the story is...

Short review: great book. Don't let this linger on your shelf like I did, you'll regret it.
The longer this story unfolds, the more tense and dramatic it becomes. I'm finding myself genuinely surprised at this - I've read a couple of other Soule joints and this level of control, of depth of resear...

Space! Aliens! Government conspiracy! Political allegory!
Letter 44 is a legitimately expert written, multi-level political thriller and space adventure. Charles Soule is on point here with his fantastic dialog, plotting, characterization, and visual details. Even the way the story literally unfo...

Letter 44 was a breath of fresh air. It is a solid sci-fi opera. I'd call it a space opera, but there are a lot of events on Earth as well.
The 44th President has just been elected. As he sits down in the Oval Office he finds, as per tradition, the previous President's letter to him. Inside is a b...

When newly elected President Blades entered office, he didn't think life would be easy. He didn't expect to learn about aliens, possibly/probably planning some kind of invasion, and a secret space mission to study the aliens.
This was su...

Maybe this will get better. I was hopeful because it is clearly a commentary on the Bush years from the perspective of the Obama administration, with some new information, that Bush had a secret, that there was this little alien problem they encountered in outer space… I don't (yet) like it much,...
